    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2001 vintage was an amazing start to the new millennium. It was somewhat of a bizarre growing season that finished spectacularly. An early spring, followed by lots of heat in May and June established the canopy early. A cool July and August allowed for slow maturing. Harvest was somewhat early, but there was a long growing season from berry set to harvest. Acid levels and pH's were high as a result of the increased hang-time. Many wine industry insiders are commenting that we have not seen a vintage like 2001 since 1997.

    Just like the rest of the Clos LaChance wines from the 2001 vintage, this wine has the complexity we like to showcase. Lots of focused cherry and currant fruit are carried by integrated oak flavors of cinnamon, vanilla, spice and graham. Tealeaves, cedar and eucalyptus work their way from the nose to the mouth along with classic earth and raspberry. The medium tannins fill the mouth and continue through the length and lush finish.
